I got to admit when I heard that I had been selected to receive the Beauty Bloggers VoxBox from Influenster, I had to find out what was in them! I had a sneak peak at Andrea Matillano's Beauty Bloggers unboxing video, and got even more excited when I saw that NYC had thrown in one of their Individual Eyes Custom Compacts. I was a bit disappointed when I had received my box and found that I got the palette that I did.
I received the Limited Edition Dark Shadows palette. The reason I was disappointed is because I have so many similar colors, and I don't wear shades like that much.
BUT the colors are very pigmented, and I understand why they paired them together. They're all shimmery which is a turnoff for me. The shadows can be powdery and because of this, the fallout in the palette gets caught in the primer and illuminator.
The primer and illuminator are not the best, and because the dark shadow fallout lands in them, it makes them dark and gross.
I really like the concept of this palette and the price. It retails for $4.99, and you can get them in drugstores that carry NYC products.
I know for a fact that I won't reach for this palette on a regular basis--only if I want to use one of the colors in the palette.
What do you think of these palettes? Have you tried them? I would love to know what you think!
